Tears into a Pillow


The stains are there,
they won't wash away
tears into a pillow
in fragile array


Soaked into linen
smothered by night
tears into a pillow
unseen by light


No sound accompanies
but the silence is loud
tears into a pillow
midnight rain cloud


Sleep finally comes
in the small hours of dark
tears into a pillow
have left their mark


Yet peace won't appear
in eyes which have cried
tears into a pillow
for love that has died


When daylight is over
and sunshine is gone
tears into a pillow
continue onů

Ditto Nan's comment-so many times have there been tears in my pillow, and they don't always bring peace. Well spoken, Caroline.
